Abandoned Cemeteries
Managed By: Icon Here Gravediggers
Description:
You walk through the woods and stumble upon a gravestone. One becomes two, two becomes three and before you know it you're standing in the middle of an overgrown, forgotten cemetery.
Expanded Description:
Headstones askew and barely legible, these forgotten and strangely romantic places contain a wealth of information about the history of an area, as well as the people who once lived there.

If you come upon one of these fascinating cemeteries, please mark the coordinates and do a little investigating.
